>Baby donation? Is it still customary for certain fae species to deal in that sort of thing?
>"I don't know, I never wanted this to happen and--eh?"

>It is still practiced, but you've never heard of fae donating children to humans.
->At best humans are made fertile or their own child is returned.

>Behind you is a yellow haired fairy with a frilled witch's hat.
>Clutching a basket of mushrooms she skids to a stop in front of you while gasping for breath.
>"You. You still have. that mirror?" The fairy gasps out.

>The new fairy tries to shove the basket of mushrooms into your hands.

>"We could cast Master Spark with it."

>"Mirror....?"
>Quickly turn to the others in realization.
>"...Wait, was the owner of this body interacting with any kind of magic mirror recently? The artifact that sent me here also happened to be a mirror, so there might be a connection!"

>The purple fairy shakes her head, "No, she was playing with Cirno."
>"Nu'uh.  She was sleeping next to it back there," The yellow fairy jerks back in the direction both you and her came from.  "If your new, I'm Mayrisa."

>You notice several of the fairies slowly getting out of the water.

>Mayrisa also seems to be listening intently, but not to the conversation.
>The 'ice' fairy is scowling at Mayrisa.

//I just want to say that Mayrisa is a character I saw on Walfas
//Any advice is welcome

//Ah yes, that bootleg marisa fairy OC. I see you've been into CastleToast's stuff. Personally not a huge fan of it myself but eh.

>"Eillia. It is nice to meet you, Mayrisa, though I wish it were under less awkward circumstances. Would you mind showing me where you saw the mirror this body was sleeping next to? Come to think of it, do any of you happen to know the name of the person I'm currently inhabiting?"

//After the next parse I'll probably wait to see if another player posts before continuing.

>"Ah," Mayrisa scratches the back of her head.  "I would, but you see I. . ."

>"Get Back here!"  You hear someone shout from where Mayrisa came from.

>"Huh? She doesn't have a name.  None of us do," The purple haired fairy says.

>An older girl dressed like Marisa only missing  the witch hat she grabs the fairy by scruff of her shirt.

>The new girl pulls the witch hat off Mayrisa then sighs at a yellow stain.  "What'd you get on it?"

"Ahhaa," Mayrisa turns from the human to you. "Eillia. . .help?"

>How similar does she appear to Mayrisa aside from outfit choice?

//EDIT: Removed the second part of this to use in my next post instead because I don't want to advance time just yet without knowing the answers to the above.

>The differences that you notice are different eye colours and the new girl doesn't have wings.
>You did see Mayrisa had a huge patch of blue hair on the crown and scalp of her head in the middle of her yellow hair.
->You aren't sure if the new girl has a blue patch too.

//The new girl

>"Still, it doesn't feel right to refer to the owner of this body as merely the owner... If I manage to contact her soul, perhaps I'll ask if she would like a name..."

The ice fairy winces at your words.
 "Please, tell her to remember what the great fairies said about names."

>Are half breeds between humans and fairies possible?
>Yes.
->The nobility was known to use humans to keep their lineage strong.

>The human looks at you. "This fairy stole my hat and several of my mushrooms."
>Mayrisa nods. "Its true, but Marisa is sooo cool and strong!"

>"So, why'd ya possess a fairy?" asks Marisa.

>"It was completely unintentional on my part. I had a rather unfortunate encounter with a magic mirror, you see."
>Ponder whether the two of them could possibly be related.
>Or at least of the same coven given their attire.
>>Actually, are human witch covens and/or mage guilds known to contain an occasional member of the fair folk, or is such intermingling of magic practitioners unheard of? Or are covens/guilds not a thing -- at least among magic-capable humans -- anymore in our day and age?

>Marisa visibly stands straighter at the mention of the word magic. "I was looking for rare mushrooms, but if you're in trouble I might as well lend ya a hand."

>It is possible that the human and the fairy are related.
-->As for them being in the same coven, you aren't sure.
--->You aren't familiar with fae interacting with human family members.

>Witches and the fae don't normally co-mingle in covens or guilds.
->Usually a witch may make a contract with a fae such as a sylph or gnome.
-->A fairy godmother or a fairy particularly interested in a human might setup a coven with a human.

>Covens are quite common.  Witches utilized technology to contact each other through the world wide web.

>What's the fair folk's stance on debt and human acts of kindness towards fae, if any? Is there a sort of honor code in place that we're urged to follow in such situations? Is it dependent on the species of fae? Do our personal opinions on the matter differ from the normal doctrine?

Re: An Out of Context Incident

>Concerning debt,  a fae can owe a debt to another fae, but never owes a debt to a human.

>Humans can owe debts to fae.

>Saying that, you would be looked down upon for not repaying the kindness and it would make employment harder.

>Most Fae follow this reasoning though there are exceptions such as Dullahans and beasts such as kelpies.

>Your opinion doesn't vary significantly from doctrine.

//Not sure of I explained it clearly, but Marisa could save your life and you wouldn't owe her.

>We still resided in England after our inexplicable resurrection, correct?
>>On that matter, do we know what caused the Great Revival, or was it an unexplained phenomenon that people from both the magic and mundane worlds have yet to figure out?

>Where were we before the mirror encounter? Were we in England/Our country of residence or did the group that held us captive take us to some other country?
>Do we know what that group was planning to do with us?
>What were we doing that got us captured anyway? Were we simply unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, or were we on a mission that went wrong? Neither?
>Does the human group have a name or did we simply not care enough about them to know it?

//I was going to answer Marisa in this post but I realize I never really asked where we were prior to entering the mirror. Assuming it's somewhere in Europe, but I could be wrong. Also that train of thought made me realize other information about our backstory we haven't asked about yet hence the long string of questions lol.

>No, you were resurrected in what you now believe was Northern Italy.

>No one is sure what caused the Great Revival.
-> The only clue is all the deceased, yourself included, heard someone or something shout, "The gates have been torn asunder".

>You don't know where you where.
->The group had moved you around several times.

>You've heard rumors about them eating entities such as yourself to gain eternal life.
->There is also a rumor that their soldiers attach the flesh of mystical entities to use those entities' powers.
-->You don't truly know though.

>You were looking for the Cup of Jamshid to offer as a present when you returned back to England.
->A home in Iran is where they captured you.

>Several guards and prisoners called the organization the Human Reclamation.

>A cup of whatnow?
>Who were we intending to give it to? Were we going to seek out Lord Bree if he was among the revived and present it to him, or was it for somebody else? A friend, perhaps? ...Family?

>"It's nice to meet you, Miss Kirisame. My name is Eillia."

>"As for your question, I unfortunately have no idea where the exact mirror I encountered is, it could be anywhere on the planet for all I know. However, that being said, Mayrisa here mentioned that the owner of this body was with a mirror earlier today, so I'm hoping that it might be connected to the other mirror. I was actually about to ask her if she would be willing to show me where she last saw the mirror before you showed up."

>You never did find the cup.

>You have a mother, father, two brothers and three sisters, all born fae.
->Your parents work as free tenant farmers.

>Lord Bree wouldn't have considered you valuable.
->Having not gone back to England, Lord Bree may have guessed, but could not be completely certain.

>Mayrisa stops and points at an oval shaped patch of grass that has been flattened. "Here!"

>Marisa glances around, "We're near the edge of the forest.  Was there anyone else here when you woke up?"

>Is the patch about the size of the mirror we entered or is it smaller like a handheld mirror?

>Is this the same area where we first found ourselves in this body?
>>If yes, then: "I didn't notice anybody in the immediate area when I found myself in this body, though I do recall hearing somebody singing in the distance. It was a girl by the sound of it. Lyric wise, I wasn't able to make out much other than something about a Bird of the Night and eating humans... Unfortunately, I'm not sure if that's enough information to go off of."

>It looks like a perfect match for the large full body mirror.

>This is were you woke up.

>Marisa nods. "It is and we can ask Mystia about the mirror when we see her."
>Marisa gets on her hands and knees and begins slowly searching around the patch of grass.
>"You should look too.  There might be a clue to who took your mirror."
